Our Christmas Ballerina

Grace Taylor had her first dance recital a couple of weeks ago. I kid you not, she was the cutest, most precious thing you have ever seen! I literally had to fight back tears, all of the girls were so adorable. They did there dance to a piano version of "Mary had a little lamb." They did it three times, and then did some individual stuff across the floor. Poor Daddy was in California for work, and had to miss it. :( Lolly and Pop came, and we went out for a cupcake afterwards. I gave sweet little Grace a pink ballet slipper ornament for doing such a great job! It was a magical morning!

Bennett at 11 Months

Bennie Bear turned 11 months old on the 11th of this month. I can not believe he has been with us a month shy of a year! I do not know where the last few months went. It's funny how time flies, but at the same time it feels like a lifetime ago that Grace was an only child. I do know one thing for certain, our family would not be right without the B-Man. Now for updates on our meatball! He is 22 lbs and finally has a tooth, with another on the way. He says Dada, Mama, Hi, bye-bye, and has the sweetest coos and giggles. He pulls up, and stands on everything including the dishwasher! He is so quick, it's insane. TJ watched both kids for a couple hours the other night while I volunteered at the church, and he called me lecturing me about how I must baby-proof our house, yada yada, yada, yada. I caved, and we are turning our front room into a playroom, complete with a 94inch baby gate to keep the rats, sweet doll babies in. :) My dreams of a beautiful study/formal living room are over. It will now be a kid-friendly safe space. Since it is adjacent from the dining room and the first room you see when you walk in, I am still going to try and make it look as nice and normal as possible. We will see how that goes... b

Turkey Day Recap!

Sorry I am soooo behind... Just when I thought it was going to be a nice and slow Christmas season with nothing on the calendar, we were slammed with 1st birthday celebrations, neighborhood parties, ballet recitals, engagement parties, sickness and I was hired to work on my first design project!! So much has been going on with the Little family that I have lots and lots to blog about. Hopefully, I can catch you all up! For starters, we had a lovely Thanksgiving with TJ's parents. The perfect meal, company, complete with an afternoon tossing the football and jumping in leaf piles. Here are a few pictures from our day. So much to be thankful for. My heart is so full, and I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Lord.
